    Both are correct. "I have a headache" is more common in American English, while "I've got a headache" is more common in British English, but neither sounds odd to my ears.

    I don't understand. Are you teaching a pronunciation class? If so, that is the only situation I can imagine in which it might possibly be acceptable for the students not to understand the sentences.
